Low-power option adopted for ILC technical design baseline

| 14 April 2011 Establishing a new baseline for the ILC technical design requires balancing performance, cost and risk issues. A proposal to halve the number of bunches in the machine, reducing power and cost has been approved, following a one-year study of all the impacts.

ILCSC reviews GDE progress and plans

| 7 April 2011 The International Linear Collider Steering Committee met in Beijing in February and carried out their review of the Global Design Effort progress. They also had lively and informative discussions regarding the future of the worldwide efforts towards the ILC and beyond 2012. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

I have a dream…

| 31 March 2011 Is it possible to build a strong, long-term and globally coordinated accelerator R&D programme? Most probably, and Jean-Pierre Delahaye wishes to. In this week’s director’s corner, he explains how, referring to a review of new accelerator projects he presented at ICHEP2010 conference in Paris last year. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: ,

To our Japanese colleagues

| 17 March 2011 On behalf of the Global Design Effort for the International Linear Collider, I would like to convey our deepest care and sympathy to the citizens of Japan and to our physics colleagues and collaborators for the tragedy that your country has suffered as a result of the earthquake and tsunami last week.

FALC discusses future programmes in particle physics

| 10 March 2011 Representatives of particle physics funding agencies worldwide met at SLAC in January in an informal forum called FALC. This provided an opportunity to jointly discuss the worldwide program and plans in particle physics on the eve of the much anticipated next data run at the CERN Large Hadron Collider.

Progress in the nanometre world

| 24 February 2011 Two periods dedicated to beam tuning and beam size studies at KEK's Accelerator Test Facility ATF2, built to test the ILC's final focus system, have brought researchers a step closer to achieving the ILC's demanding beam parameters. Executive Committee member Toshiaki Tauchi reports on the studies. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged:

Interim report from the ILC-CLIC general issues group

| 17 February 2011 A freshly released report from the ILC-CLIC working group on general issues summarises general issues and synergies involving a future a linear collider. It also discusses plans for the ILC and CLIC efforts to identify common issues regarding siting, technical issues and project planning. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , , ,

A conversation about our future

| 10 February 2011 What is the ILC future programme beyond the Technical Design Report? How does the ILC project move forward if the decision on a linear collider construction project is delayed a few years? These questions and many others were addressed during the last Funding Agencies for Large Colliders meeting held on 22 January at SLAC, US. Category: Director's Corner | Tagged: , , ,

Taking heed of good advice

| 3 February 2011 The most obvious benefit of the seemingly endless series of reviews we undergo comes from the rigours of doing our preparations. But the reviews also serve to validate our work, and perhaps most importantly, the review committees give us good advice in their reports. Last autumn, we had a two-day technical review of the Global Design Effort by the Project Advisory Committee (PAC), a subcommittee of the International Linear Collider Steering Committee (ILCSC). Several recommendations came out of that PAC review that have been quite helpful to us as we prepare to make final decisions on the proposed new baseline configuration for the ILC Technical Design Report (TDR).
